A Petrarch Legend to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

We’re paying homage to the Queen on 70 fabulous years of reign with a project that both the Queen and Prince Philip opened themselves. What an honour and a privilege. All hail the Queen!

The Technology & Innovation Centre – Royal Opening

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh formally opened this impressive flagship Technology & Innovation Centre, which we are super proud to include in our Petrarch Legends portfolio!

This landmark £89-million centre conceived by BDP (Building Design Partnership Ltd) transforms the way academics collaborate with business, industry and the public sector.

‘The BREEAM award-winning TIC, opens doors to new areas of research, innovation and technology development, all aimed towards creating new possibilities, new levels of dynamic collaborations and productive outcomes. With a focus on finding solutions to challenges in enabling technologies and the low carbon economy.’

‘The TIC is the cornerstone of Scotland’s International Technology and Renewable Energy Zone (ITREZ) which is a global research and development hub, bringing business and academia together to work together on the development of the offshore renewables sector.’ ArchDaily
